Kickin' off 2020 with some war stories from my parents! · 3:36am Jan 2nd, 2020

So, my mom invited some friends over, and at some point while we were having dinner, the conversation turned to comparing the Korean and Vietnam wars, because her friends were Korean, and my parents (even though they aren't fully Vietnamese) came from Vietnam.

I can't offer much in the way of advice as to what to do at church though if I followed the rules set forth for me it was, "Sing when they sing, don't talk or fidget and drink what they give you."

"But dad," I'd say, "It's blood!"

"You're a vampire now son! Drink up!'

"And the cracker?"

"That's his flesh."

"How BIG was this guy?"

"Graves Registration," and Taste in Literature · 5:20am Nov 24th, 2022

Joe Haldeman served a tour of duty in the Vietnam War, before he became well known as a science fiction writer.
